Fascination of Plants Day

Zbliża się szósta edycja międzynarodowej akcji ‘Fascynujący Dzień Roślin’ 2022 (FoPD 2022), która będzie odbywać się na całym świecie pod auspicjami Europejskiej Organizacji Nauk o Roślinach (European Plant Science Organisation – EPSO).

Celem tej akcji jest zaprezentowanie pracy osób zafascynowanych światem roślin, a także przekazanie przesłania, że wiedza o roślinach jest niezmiernie ważna dla rozwoju rolnictwa, ogrodnictwa i leśnictwa oraz zrównoważonego wytwarzania żywności. Znajomość świata roślin ma równie ważne znaczenie w produkcji wszelkich produktów pochodzenia roślinnego, takich jak papier, drewno, odczynniki chemiczne, energia, czy farmaceutyki. Bardzo ważnym przesłaniem akcji jest również wskazanie znaczenia roślin dla zachowania środowiska. Zapraszamy wszystkich do przyłączenia się do tej inicjatywy!

Be the director, leading actor/actress, camerman & producer of your own movie and win one of our cash prizes!

The ERA- Net SusCrop is launching a video contest to actively involve EVERYBODY from across the world to reflect, communicate and inspire on ‘what sustainable crop production means to you?’.

The competition is open to EVERYBODY and is supposed to activate multiple groups: school children, students, scientists, farmers/farmer-groups, and any person/group of random enthusiasts, artists (film, circus, music, digital/installation art, …), architects, social media/communication workers, etc.

KEYWORDS to inspire: sustainability, resilience, agriculture, forestry, ecology, crop production, crops, plants, science, nature, climate change, the future

However, we invite any kind of video: be original, think out-of-the-box! What does sustainability in the area of crop production mean to you? How should agriculture look like in the future? Do you practice sustainability procedures in growing crops or ornamental plants in your environment (e.g. your garden or balcony)?

More information on the different categories, prizes, eligibility conditions and selection criteria can be found on: https://www.suscrop.eu/video-contest-2022

“Opening” on the website of the Park “Babiogórski Herbarium” is an educational campaign carried out somewhat with a grain of salt. Sometimes referring to the characteristics of the plant, sometimes to its name, and sometimes to its appearance, we will present one of the plants found in the Babia Góra massif or at its feet every May day.
The aim of “Babiogórski Herbarium” is not only to introduce you to the plants found here, but also to arouse your fascination and smile 🙂

Conducted by: Justyna Łęcka, Weronika Torbicz, Grzegorz Sychowski, dr hab. Andrzej Kaźmierczak, prof. UŁ

The phenomenon of programmed cell death (PCD), colloquially known as apoptosis, albeit incorrectly, is the second major one, next to the mitotic cell cycle, responsible for regulating the number of cells in animal and plant organisms, as well as in populations of unicellular organisms and those growing in suspension cultures. Like every process, such and this one has its characteristic manifestations, called “hallmarks”. The aim of the proposed workshops is to present, with the active participation of the audience, the most important of them. These will be experiments based on the fluorescent staining of ethidium bromide and acridine orange in cell nuclei, allowing to visualize the manifestations common to all organisms at the level of chromatin organization, and experiments based on measuring the concentration of ethylene produced by plants in which the PCD process takes place.

Conducted by: dr hab. prof. AMU Michał Rurek, Department of Molecular and Cell Biology, Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology, Faculty of Biology, AMU

The endosymbiotic theory perfectly explains the origins of plastids and mitochondria. Which organelles appeared first? I will give remarkable examples of how they have changed throughout the history of life on Earth, and discuss the factors that determined the survival of organelles in a cell. How can plastids be intercourse or stolen even today? Can animals be plastid thieves? I will present the richness of organelle genomes, discuss their evolution and importance in the functioning of organelles in the past and now. I will answer the question of how the unusual organelle genomes of a certain semi-parasitic plant and common weed revolutionized biology. Finally, I will explain how we can use the practically extremely winding paths of organelle evolution.

The natural world is changing more and more under the influence of global warming and human pressure. One consequence of this is the ever-increasing threat posed by enigmatic invasive plant species. This group includes plants that often come from warmer regions of our globe that appear in new territories and begin their spectacular expansions there. During this lectures, we will look at the most invasive of them and find out how they threaten nature and us.

We follow the routes of rare and protected plants, getting to know their structure, diversity and beauty. We will discover the reasons why they are difficult to find and why they are worth protecting. By showing their nature, we will find out what role they play in the natural world and why they are more than just a decoration that pleases our eyes. Once we get to know the diversity and beauty of rare, common and important plants, we will arm our eyes with precise optical tools and set out on a journey inside them, revealing the secrets of their secluded world, to find out about the diversity of cells and tissues that build them. We will see that both the inconspicuous, fragile and small as well as monumental, strong and huge hide rich interiors of their nature. Would you like to go on such an expedition?

Orchids have fascinated nature researchers and ordinary observers for centuries. Today, many species are threatened with extinction. Whether they survive is also up to us … or more specifically, our knowledge of their intriguing biology. EscapeRoom will be a botanical challenge – a test of knowledge about ecology, morphology and the occurrence of these unusual plants. In order to find the key to the exit, you will have to strain your mind, carefully browse the pages of the game for clues, to steal secrets from the biggest crooks among plants. I invite you to an exciting journey into the mysterious world of orchids …

All

presentation

From single-celled algae to powerful, over 300-year-old beeches and oaks. From pale roots to colorful orchids, spring undergrowth plants, flowers of wet and fresh meadows.
From the rarest service in the Drawa Primeval Forest, to the ubiquitous pines and birches. From the peculiar northern chamedaphne to the common and bothersome small-flower impatiens.
Drawieński National Park is characterized by a great variety of habitats, which, combined with several decades of nature conservation tradition, results in the presence of many plant species. More than 1,000 species of algae, bryophytes and vascular plants have found their place to live here. Over 100 species are protected. Some of them, e.g. northern chamedaphne (Chamaedaphne calyculata), Loesela lipnik (Liparis leoselii), delicate woolly (Eriophorum gracile), common charcoal (Chara jubata), were considered extremely endangered in Poland. We are proud to announce that they are doing well in the Drawieński National Park.
Drawieński Park Narodowy joins the international campaign “Fascinating Plant Day”. It confirms that the world of plants is fascinating, mysterious and inspiring. He also advances the thesis that not only music soothes manners. So are the flowers.

Conducted by: Dr. Jolanta Tyburska-Woś

Most terrestrial plants form symbiotic associations with mycorrhizal fungi and may vary in nature. White horse chestnut, also known as common or ordinary, which is one of the most popular city trees, is associated with mycorrhiza symbiosis with arbuscular mushrooms. This species is a beautiful, stately tree. Unfortunately, in the last two decades, the leaves of the white horse chestnut trees in many parts of Europe, including Poland, have been damaged by the larva of the Cameraria ohridella insect. During the lecture we will learn how damage to horse chestnut leaves caused by horse chestnut mycorrhoea affects the mycorrhizal colonization of the roots of this tree.

We follow the routes of rare and protected plants, getting to know their structure, diversity and beauty. We will discover the reasons why they are difficult to find and why they are worth protecting. By showing their nature, we will find out what role they play in the natural world and why they are more than just a decoration that pleases our eyes. Once we get to know the diversity and beauty of rare, common and important plants, we will arm our eyes with precise optical tools and set out on a journey inside them, revealing the secrets of their secluded world, to find out about the diversity of cells and tissues that build them. We will see that both the inconspicuous, fragile and small as well as monumental, strong and huge hide rich interiors of their nature. Would you like to go on such an expedition?

We follow the routes of rare and protected plants, getting to know their structure, diversity and beauty. We will discover the reasons why they are difficult to find and why they are worth protecting. By showing their nature, we will find out what role they play in the natural world and why they are more than just a decoration that pleases our eyes. Once we get to know the diversity and beauty of rare, common and important plants, we will arm our eyes with precise optical tools and set out on a journey inside them, revealing the secrets of their secluded world, to find out about the diversity of cells and tissues that build them. We will see that both the inconspicuous, fragile and small as well as monumental, strong and huge hide rich interiors of their nature. Would you like to go on such an expedition?

The infectious strategy of bacterial soil pathogens of the Rhizobium rhizogenes species (rhizogenic agrobacteria) involves the introduction into the genomes of the infected plant tissue of a fragment of the own plasmid Ri containing a set of Rol genes, the expression of which leads to the development of numerous adventitious roots called hairy roots at the site of infection. Such plants, called Ri plants, have a different morphology compared to plants obtained in the traditional way. The aim of the project is to develop a new technique of cultivating crops using rhizogenic agrobacteria of the species Rhizobium rhizogenes to improve the functioning of the root system, increase drought tolerance and enable sustainable plant production.

In recent decades, the cultivated area of plants has decreased, but the mass and quality of obtained plant materials is constantly increasing. In the past, scientific and technical progress was limited only to the use of artificial fertilizers, as well as insecticides and herbicides. Currently, the goal is to obtain a plant with genetic features that have features favorable from the human point of view. The use of the latest techniques of biotechnology, such as genetic engineering, in vitro cultures, molecular biology, enables the creation of genetically modified plants containing genes that do not occur in natural conditions. Such treatments can be valuable to us and well-used by humans.

The large consumption of chemical fertilizers is causing negative environmental effects. To combat this problem biofertilizers can be a good alternative. Biofertilizer contains living micro-organisms (Plant Growth Promoting Bacteria) which, when applied to seeds, plant surfaces, or soil, colonize the rhizosphere or the interior of the plant and promotes growth by increasing the supply or availability of primary nutrients to the host plant . The students will be learning the following interesting facts about PGPB: the world of PGPB and their symbiotic relationship with plants through animated pictures and how they can help to mitigate the use of chemical fertilizers and their role in sustainable agriculture.

presentation

Moderator: Dr. Alicja Drozd-Liińska

In pre-industrial human groups, one of the most important natural controllers of natural movement was endemic or epidemic diseases. Their nature and frequency have evolved over the centuries. It is emphasized in the literature that epidemics occurred after prolonged periods of starvation, which reduced the biological resistance of the population. One of the epidemic diseases was cholera, whose recurring waves decimated Europe in the 19th century.
The first guides in which attempts were made to develop a disease prevention system appeared in Poland just after the wave of 1831, and one of the recommended drugs were plant extracts with a strong – as we know today – poisonous action.
The lecture will present the issue of epidemic diseases in Poland through the prism of the interdisciplinary research project “Mortality of inhabitants of the Kujawy village in the years 1815-1914 against the background of socio-economic changes and changes in climate elements on the example of the Kowal parish. An attempt at an interdisciplinary analysis based on historical and climatological sources ”, financed by the National Science Center (No. 2017/25 /B/HS3/00243).

Conducted by: Dr. Edyta Adamska, Department of Geobotany and Landscape Planning

It is about epiphytic lichens – growing on the bark of trees and shrubs. We will consider whether lichens harm the trees they inhabit or, on the contrary, promote their health. We will answer the questions: what are lichens? We will test the theory in practice – we will make our own preparations and view them under microscopes. You will learn how to determine with the help of epiphytic lichens whether the living conditions in your place are healthy for you. After leaving the Faculty building, you will always notice their thallus growing on tree trunks.

Plant components are increasingly used in cosmetics due to the limited use of animal products. Plants can be used as an ingredient in cosmetic products in the form of three forms: as total extracts, selective extracts and as single molecules obtained from these extracts. During the workshop, students will learn about the most common plants used in the production of cosmetics and learn how to analyze the compositions of commercially available cosmetics in order to purchase a product with the most valuable cosmetic properties.

Moderator: Dr. Ewa Rogowska

Multipurpose plants – often inconspicuous, ineffective, a bit forgotten, degraded many times to the role of weeds, yet providing comprehensive benefits. They are not only a source of food, clothing or shelter. They are also an antidote to our various ailments. The fashion for their cultivation has returned, not only because of their beneficial effects but also because of their decorative qualities. They please the eyes, calm down, make you optimistic. Calendula, St. John’s wort, cornflower, violet and even ordinary clover or nettle …

Conducted by: Monika Wójcik-Musiał, MA

Nobody will deny that plants enchant us with their beauty, colors and smell, but not only what is visible outside is valuable in them. Take, for example, herbal plants – usually one or two years old – they show health and healing properties, serve as spices in the kitchen, and provide essential oils. In nature, they are of great importance because they provide pollen and nectar to pollinating insects. Birds and mammals take advantage of their benefits, and one of them is… rabbits. So let’s look at the herbs through the eyes of this lagomorph.
During the classes, participants will have the opportunity to see, smell and touch herbs – both dried and those growing in the flower bed in the UKW Botanical Garden. They will learn why rabbits should eat herbs and which species they eat most willingly. Together with the lecturer, they will answer the question whether we – humans also use the same species.

We will get to know insects that feed on plants, as well as those that are pollinators of plants. We will admire the unusual creations of nature, i.e. galls, on the leaves and shoots of known plant species. We will also learn about natural ways to combat the “undesirable tenants” of our gardens and orchards.

Stress accompanies a person throughout his life. But is it only to a human? Stress can most simply be defined as the body’s reaction to factors that threaten or violate the body’s balance. Unlike animals, plants cannot escape danger, so how do they cope with adverse environmental conditions? What are plant defense strategies? The lecture will discuss the variety of plant adaptations to unfavorable environmental conditions and the importance of plant hyperaccumulators in human life.

presentation

Dr. Monika Malicka

Biodiversity is an extremely broad and multidimensional concept that encompasses not only species biodiversity, but also functional biodiversity and the biodiversity of interactions between organisms. The biodiversity of some microorganisms cannot exist without the biodiversity of other organisms that interact with them. Plant biodiversity is closely related to the biodiversity of mycorrhizal fungi living in their roots, the biodiversity of which depends on the bacteria associated with them. This example is only a small part of the web of the multitude of interactions between the diversity of organisms throughout the ecosystem.

presentation

dr hab. Gabriela Woźniak, prof. UŚ, mgr Karolina Ryś

Throughout history, man separates more and more from nature. The land area occupied by cities and agricultural lands is growing. This creates circumstances conducive to the loss of the essence and importance of natural processes.

The aim of the presentation is to show that the natural environment is a system of bio-geo-chemical elements that are closely related to each other. The basis for managing the natural environment must be knowledge that is constantly updated about natural processes. In view of the widespread interchangeable use of concepts, it is necessary to consistently recall their original, true meanings. Incorrect use of concepts leads, among others, to the creation of concepts that are inconsistent with the facts. The aim of the presented papers is to present scientific knowledge about the resources and natural potential of Silesia. The presented papers take into account the aspects of the dynamics of natural processes, both in the context of changes taking place over time and adaptation processes. The available research results and the research plans implemented in the natural sciences provide the basis for the creation of a proprietary management and development program for Silesia, taking into account the resources and potential of natural processes, including areas created as a result of, among others, the exploitation of mineral resources.

Katowice

presentation

dr hab. Anna Orczewska, prof. of the University of Silesia

Natural forests, of which less than 0.5% in Central Europe are left, cannot be replaced by tree plantations. Due to the fact that old forests have developed over the centuries without significant human influence, they are characterized by a large structural and species diversity. Many forest species cannot exist in simplified forests that are shaped or planted by humans. Ancient trees regulate the hydrological and climatic conditions. By absorbing and accumulating huge amounts of CO2, they are our great ally in the fight against global warming. Thanks to their genetic wealth, they are a kind of safety valve in a dynamically changing environment. Finally, they are living laboratories and windows to the ecological past of forests. It is only thanks to them that we know what the forests that once covered large areas of Europe looked like. By cutting down old forests, we are irretrievably losing our heritage and depriving future generations of the chance to learn what wild, natural forests are.

In densely built-up and heavily transformed areas in urban-industrial landscapes, there are fragments of open mineral poor habitats that are colonized by the best adapted living organisms. The presence of poor oligotrophic habitat (environmental) islands is a key factor increasing the mosaic of mineral habitats in a wide gradient of moisture conditions which directly it translates into biodiversity in local and landscape areas

Every plant needs light to live – without it, the process of photosynthesis would not take place. However, too much light can damage plants. Chloroplasts, i.e. organelles that convert light into the energy of chemical bonds, have created a special mechanism that protects them from excessive sunlight. Mechanism this one is called chloroplast escape. During the show you will learn how and where chloroplasts “run”.

Dr. Małgorzata Pawlik

Looking at a plant, smelling flowers or eating carrots, we do not notice how many microorganisms, mainly bacteria, live inside every described plant on Earth. This amazing biodiversity matters! Plants are colonized by microorganisms without which their growth would be impossible. When and how are plants colonized by bacteria? What makes plants an attractive place for bacteria to live? Who chooses whom, plant bacteria or bacteria plant?

Do you know how to study the function of genes? In genetics, there are two approaches called “Forward” from phenotype to genotype and “reverse” from genotype to phenotype. Various tools are used in functional genomics. I will tell you how mutants carrying changes in the HvSNAC1 (Stress responsive NAC1) gene in barley, encoding a transcription factor from the NAC family, were obtained, and what conclusions their analysis led to. Are you curious about this SNAC story? If so, I invite you to a lecture!

presentation

Diversity has the potential to regulate the state of the living environment of people and other organisms, and the conditions in which they occur. By creating ecosystems, it provides ecosystem services without which there would be no life on Earth. For many years, attempts to monetize the diversity potential still do not reflect the actual state of affairs. Hence, it is necessary to consider how to explain the necessity of biodiversity and its functions. Verification of pricelessness – as a good not assessed monetarily and priceless as a good without which life on Earth cannot be realized.

From time immemorial, plants have been used as a “murder weapon” (in the form of poison), and it has become clear over time that this is also excellent evidence in court cases. Algae, mosses, flowering plants, their underground and aboveground parts, pollen and spores help to solve many criminal mysteries, to identify, among others, the place where the body was left, link it with the crime scene or the place where the murder weapon was hidden. They have also become material for discovering the history of valuable monuments. The lecture will be a treasury of knowledge about the most common plants and with which methods and techniques they can be analyzed in forensic examinations. Lawsuits from around the world where a botanical footprint was used as evidence will be presented.

Every plant needs light to live – without it, the process of photosynthesis would not take place. However, too much light can damage plants. Chloroplasts, i.e. organelles that convert light into the energy of chemical bonds, have created a special mechanism that protects them from excessive sunlight. Mechanism this one is called chloroplast escape. During the show you will learn how and where chloroplasts “run”.

Modifications of phosphate uptake by plants
Modyfikacje pobierania fosforanów przez rośliny
Białystok
Students
Indoor
presentation

Phosphorus is a macronutrient necessary for the proper growth and development of plants. The deficiency of the forms of phosphorus available to plants, mainly phosphate (Pi) ions in the soil solution, is a frequent phenomenon. Plants have developed a variety of mechanisms to adapt to Pi deficiency conditions – enabling Pi uptake and assimilation through changes in the morphology and functioning of the root system, and better management of the reduced Pi pool in cells. The elucidation of the basis of these mechanisms now makes it possible to create new cultivars of crop plants adapted to the conditions of reduced Pi availability in soil.

Every plant needs light to live – without it, the process of photosynthesis would not take place. However, too much light can damage plants. Chloroplasts, i.e. organelles that convert light into the energy of chemical bonds, have created a special mechanism that protects them from excessive sunlight. Mechanism this one is called chloroplast escape. During the show you will learn how and where chloroplasts “run”.

Conducted by: prof. dr hab. Halina Gabryś

Can plants see? But how – you will say – they don’t have eyes. Yes, but they have photoreceptors that allow them to register the length of the illumination period, intensity, color and direction of the light. Thus, photoreceptor pigments perform functions such as visual pigments. The light they absorb is used as a signal from the environment. It carries information that the plant uses to change gene expression to adapt its development to climatic conditions or to make movements that allow for the best conditions for photosynthesis.

presentation

During the lecture we will present what allelopathy is and chemical compounds produced by plants and affecting other species (allelopathins). It is a common phenomenon in the world of plants and can occur in many ecological situations. Secondary metabolism compounds of allelopathic importance include terpenoids and phenolic compounds. The action of allelopathins is revealed at all levels of the organization of a living organism: from physiological to molecular. The success of invasive alien species over native species is related to their “new weapon”, that is, their ability to synthesize and secrete biochemical compounds to which plants of the invaded populations are vulnerable. Allelopathic substances can be used in practice as natural herbicides.

Conducted by: Monika Wójcik-Musiał, MA

Nobody will deny that plants enchant us with their beauty, colors and smell, but not only what is visible outside is valuable in them. Take, for example, herbal plants – usually one or two years old – they show health and healing properties, serve as spices in the kitchen, and provide essential oils. In nature, they are of great importance because they provide pollen and nectar to pollinating insects. Birds and mammals take advantage of their benefits, and one of them is… rabbits. So let’s look at the herbs through the eyes of this lagomorph.
During the classes, participants will have the opportunity to see, smell and touch herbs – both dried and those growing in the flower bed in the UKW Botanical Garden. They will learn why rabbits should eat herbs and which species they eat most willingly. Together with the lecturer, they will answer the question whether we – humans also use the same species.

The role of plants in absorbing pollutants, indoor air phytoremediation

Warszawa
All
Indoor
presentation

On-line lecture conducted by Beata Bakera. People convinced of their safety inside the rooms often expose themselves to much more dangerous pollution than those from the outside. The level of air pollution in rooms is determined by: the sources of pollution in them, the types of substances present in them and their concentration, activities taking place in them, as well as the external environment. Indoor air quality determines human health and well-being, polluted air can lead to various health problems. The answer is phytoremediation, a method of removing or detoxifying inorganic and organic pollutants, as well as suspended dusts using plants, which are harmful to humans and the environment.

On-line lecture conducted by Aleksandra Naziębło. Strychnine, morphine, cyanide – these are just some of the poisons that can be found in Agatha Christie’s novels. The writer owed her knowledge in the field of pharmacology and toxicology to work in a hospital pharmacy during both world wars. Poisons of plant origin occupy a special place in her work. So let’s take a look at the pharmacy herbarium and get to know the plants that became the tool of inventive crimes, tirelessly hunted by Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot.

presentation

On-line lecture conducted by dr Rafał Archacki. Due to the sedentary lifestyle, plants must constantly adapt to changes in temperature, light intensity, periods of drought or the seasons of the year. Despite the lack of a nervous system, plants are able to “remember” the stimuli they have had contact with and thus be better prepared for their reappearance. The lecture will present examples of occurrence and the genetic basis of this type of memory.

So healthy, and yet “fat” – the hidden secrets of spinach
Taki zdrowy, a jednak „tłusty” – skrywane tajemnice szpinaku
Warszawa
All
Indoor
presentation

On-line lecture. The secrets are everywhere, but who would look for them in the innocent ingredient of many smoothies? The characteristic feature of spinach is that it hides its unknown face under an innocent green coating of the main photosynthetic pigment – chlorophyll. That is why we will set off together to look for the fat in one of the vegetables that is the bane of childhood – spinach. To this end, we will check the lipid membranes of chloroplasts without which the photosynthesis process would not be possible, we will comb many dyes bound in these membranes and we will try to recognize the lipid face of green vegetables. We invite you to our show, which will show you the colorful journey through obtaining and separating lipids. Mgr Anna Węgrzyn, mgr Joanna Wójtowicz, mgr Magdalena Łazicka.

Conducted by: Monika Wójcik-Musiał, MA

Nobody will deny that plants enchant us with their beauty, colors and smell, but not only what is visible outside is valuable in them. Take, for example, herbal plants – usually one or two years old – they show health and healing properties, serve as spices in the kitchen, and provide essential oils. In nature, they are of great importance because they provide pollen and nectar to pollinating insects. Birds and mammals take advantage of their benefits, and one of them is… rabbits. So let’s look at the herbs through the eyes of this lagomorph.
During the classes, participants will have the opportunity to see, smell and touch herbs – both dried and those growing in the flower bed in the UKW Botanical Garden. They will learn why rabbits should eat herbs and which species they eat most willingly. Together with the lecturer, they will answer the question whether we – humans also use the same species.
